      Hello, Mono, GrandCat is here.
      Grimson Lips will be totally unponified or We will have the RariTwi version too? I really wanted to translate it.

        Hi Grand!

        Crimson is currently being de-ponified, yes. I still don’t know exactly what’s going to happen to ponyversion, but it’ll stay up until I’m done with new crimson which won’t be FOR A WHILE, so feel free to translate the horse version, but I’d eventually need you to unpublish it when the original is ready to be sent to publishing houses. Just want to be transparent with you in case you don’t want your hard work to be eventually hidden like that :c

          No, I do not like to hide the work.

          Hello, Mono. GrandCat is here again.

          I thought a little lately and… I do not think that Your de-ponified version of Grimson Lips will ever be sold in Russia. Especially untranslated – and the chance to appearance of the official translation is really minimal. Maybe the Russian fan translation of Your work will not cause any troubles and I would not have to unpublish it?

          Thanks a lot.

          1. @Evgenii ShcherbakowNov 1, '23 at 9:45 pm

            Hey Grand!

            You know, you’re probably right. Feel free to go ahead, and you don’t have to take it off when the time comes.

              And I have to find it somewhere because that story is not here nor on Fimfiction…

            2. @Evgenii ShcherbakowNov 3, '23 at 12:03 am

              Hey Grand!

              If the e-mail I’m seeing in your comments on my end is accurate and in use, I can send you a copy of it there!

              @MonochromaticNov 3, '23 at 4:06 pm

              It would be great but I do not think that Iwill start the translation anytime soon. I already have some big projects. But if You want – You could send the copy anytime. World needs some good pony words.

      Hello, Mono, GrandCat is here.
      First, take all the time You need to recover – we all need You alive and kicking.
      Second, do the “Weary travellers on Kaelum” really canceled forever? I really wished I could finish translating that beautiful and bitter-sweet story.

        Hi Grand!

        Thank you for the well wishes <3 And no, it isn't. I do want to finish it, but only when I am ready to properly get back into it!

      Hi Mono! I have just finished translating The Enchanted Library into Russian. If you remember, DevilishHeat asked you for a permission to translate it in 2018, and in the end it was me who happened to finish the translation 🙂

      I am writing on two questions:
      First, is it ok for you to attach a link ( to the finished translation to the original story?
      And second, would you allow me to translate The Enchanted Kingdom?


      1. @ShaddarMar 12, '23 at 2:51 pm

        Hi Shaddar! How exciting!! Thank you so much for doing this <3

        I’ll add the link to the description rn! And regarding Enchanted Kingdom, absolutely! Go ahead. Thank you so much for your interest.

          Hello again! Thanks for the permission, it’s an honor for me to expand the audience of your fans.
          I am writing again on two questions 🙂

          First, may I translate sidestories across the TEL and TEK universe?
          And the second, more complicated, is there a cover art of «The Enchanted Kingdom» without an inscription? I need it to make translated version of it 🙂

      Mono, I finished the translation but find that the Crimson Lips is neither on fimfiction nor Hollowshades, wonder if you chose to delete the story. If so, do I have to delete the translated version?

      1. @MielMar 8, '23 at 4:15 pm

        Hi Miel!

        No, you don’t. I’m actually going to re-upload the story for now, and once I’m actually fully done with the original version, then maybe we’ll have to take them off! But for now, it’s good to stay c:
